Okay, so we all get well-meaning advice from people we see in the store, library, outon the street and from family members we see once every blue moon. Sometimes it's the most off the wall thing you've ever heard.

But, tell us something that you saw or heard that was actually a really cool thing and you put to use!

I was out with Sam and heard a mom at her car with her toddler/pre-school-age child. She was trying to unlock the door and handle a bag of items, plus the child. She told her child, "hand on the car please". At first I thought that was a bit strange, a little too cop-like. But when I saw the child place his hand on the car, giving a free hand to unlock the door and he did not move, I was AMAZED.

Sam's a runner, but since I started doing this in parking lots (we live in an apartment, so it was good practice before doing it at the store), he doesn't take off on me. He stands there waiting with his hands on the car. He knows not to run away.

That's not to say I'm not extra vigilant about watching him because he is a child. It's just nice to see that he can listen and understands.

I do this wish my oldest too....she is 2.5 and I'm always juggling the baby...the diaperbag..and whatever else is in my hands...all I have to say is "two hands on the door please" and she does it...INFACT most of the time she says "hands on the door" and does it on her own
